NAME

       vfstest - tool for testing samba VFS modules


SYNOPSIS

       vfstest [-d debuglevel] [-c command] [-l logdir] [-h]



DESCRIPTION

       This tool is part of the samba(7) suite.


       vfstest  is  a  small command line utility that has the ability to test
       dso samba VFS modules. It gives the user the ability to call the  vari-
       ous VFS functions manually and supports cascaded VFS modules.



OPTIONS

       -c|--command=command
              Execute  the specified (colon-separated) commands. See below for
              the commands that are available.


       -h|--help
              Print a summary of command line options.


       -l|--logfile=logbasename
              File name for log/debug files. The  extension.client  will  be
              appended. The log file is never removed by the client.


       -V     Prints the program version number.


       -s <configuration file>
              The  file  specified contains the configuration details required
              by the server. The information in this file includes server-spe-
              cific  information such as what printcap file to use, as well as
              descriptions of all the services that the server is to  provide.
              See  smb.conf  for  more  information. The default configuration
              file name is determined at compile time.


       -d|--debug=debuglevel
              debuglevel is an integer from 0 to 10. The default value if this
              parameter is not specified is zero.

              The higher this value, the more detail will be logged to the log
              files about the activities of the server. At level 0, only crit-
              ical  errors  and  serious warnings will be logged. Level 1 is a
              reasonable level for day-to-day running - it generates  a  small
              amount of information about operations carried out.

              Levels  above  1 will generate considerable amounts of log data,
              and should only be used when  investigating  a  problem.  Levels
              above  3  are  designed  for use only by developers and generate
              HUGE amounts of log data, most of which is extremely cryptic.

              Note that specifying this parameter here will override the   pa-
              rameter in the smb.conf file.


       -l|--logfile=logdirectory
              Base  directory  name for log/debug files. The extension ".prog-
              name" will be appended (e.g. log.smbclient,  log.smbd,  etc...).
              The log file is never removed by the client.
